in that way. last night president obama came out, addressed the nation and again tried to turn up the heat on congress by saying essentially that americans are fed up. he tries to bring the public into this debate to increase pressure, so certainly the interview on "meet the press," currently a part of that strategy and the president and his staffers watching these negotiations quite closely going on behind the scenes. >> kristen welker, thanks. we'll come back to you later. >> over to capitol hill now, luke russert is standing by. luke, what are you hearing, if anything, about progress today? >> reporter: this morning, craig, there were a hints of optimism and that's subsided to a degree. as kristen mentioned. there are sources close to the talks that say no deal has been reached and again, these negotiations are fluid. they go up and down. it's not an easy road to get to these things at the end and especially at the 11th hour. it's windy. mitch mcconnell is at the capitol and assuming he's in contact with harry reid and their staffs are going back and forth. the question has been every s
for the nomination. ethnic voters flexed their political muscle, giving president obama an unexpectedly early election night win over republican rival mitt romney. california's public education system was saved from severe budget cuts with the november passage of governor brown's proposition 30, but voters didn't say yes to all taxes. an attempt to tax soda in richmond failed, as did a statewide tobacco tax on the june ballot. new districts drawn by a citizens commission and the voter-approved top two primary system shook up races for congress and the state legislature, putting a record number of freshmen in the assembly and giving democrats a rare supermajority in sacramento. it was the beginning of realignment of the state's criminal justice system, and voters approved reform of the state's tough three strikes sentencing law. the economy sputtered but finally showed signs of improvement in the housing and job market, but in silicon valley, the highly anticipated facebook ipo fell flat. the city of stockton made headlines as the largest city in the u.s. to ever file for bankruptcy. and a dea
night moments ago, president obama saying he still has hope. >> i'm optimistic we may still be able to reach an agreement that can pass both houses in time. senators reid and mcconnell are working on such anagreement as we speak. >> and as we speak, rich edson is live in washington with the very latest. >> well, it's up to the senate. staffers and a majority leader harry reid, minority leader mitch mcconnell are trying to negotiate a scaled-down debt deal to avoid some of the fiscal cliff and take other major decisions on taxes and spending to the future. again, in an afternoon white house meeting president obama pitch a debt plan he had outlined a week ago, prevent a tax increase for income of less than to an effective thousand dollars per year and extend long-term unemployment benefits. senate leaders are using that framework to try to craft a proposal to pass both houses of congress. aides say it would likely increase the threshold for tax increases, reversing massive pay cut from medicare doctors, and elections of millions of americans to avoid paying the alternative minimum tax
this with an all-volunteer service. >> all right. final thoughts on the year 2012. >> after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [applause] >> i am nominating former president bill clinton's democratic national convention speech in 2012 as the political speech of the year. anybody want to challenge me on that? >> i echo that. he galvanized that convention. he brought them to their feet. he galvanized the political party. they came out of there as a united party, and energize the party. >> and he has a huge approval rating. this was a man who was impeached. >> there is a second and third life in american politics, and bill clinton proves it. the two most popular political figures in the united states are bill clinton and hillary clinton. he made a better case for barack obama and joe biden and barack obama and joe biden had ever made. the other thing about bill clinton's speech is he had the ultimate line in it -- "this economy was so bad even i could not have fixed it." >> i think you pointed out in the opening of the show what was the worst political moment
speaker john boehner and his fellow republicans before monday night's deadline. brian mooar, nbc washington. >> and david gregory will have an interview with president obama on "meet the press." that's tomorrow morning at 10:30 right here on nbc 4. >>> you know what that means. it's make or break time for the redskins as they face the dallas cowboys tomorrow at fedex field. the winner is in the playoffs. jason is here with more. >> one more day and we'll see if the redskins are in the post season. six straight victories turned around the season. but this team isn't concerned about the past. come sunday none of that matters at fedex field. >> another game we have to go out and win. and that's the way we look at it. so, you know, every moment in your life is the biggest one at that time. we look forward to having many more of these but we have to take care of this one. >> the stakes are high, and emotions are going to be high. and we just got come out. we have to be perfect if we want to win the game. >> this game is going to be everything we got. there is no saving it for this or
reid came out and said that it will, then it shot up. and when obama said we are offering a new plan, then the market fell again, and if we don't reach a deal by sunday night, by the time monday markets open, it will be a plunge. >> and the markets perform how people are performing through the year, and the markets are closed down, but the expectat n expectations are high, and they have to stay high, right this is. >> well, that is the danger that you saw the optimistic tone coming out of the discussion and raising the perception they will work it out and make the backlash, the whiplash stronger if we get to sunday and turns out that the talks fall apart and there is not going to be a deal. >> does the market find tor business community find any of the characters reassuring? do they want to hear from one of the people? >> well, i think that they want to hear reassuring things from all of the characters. anybody on wall street and any ceo does not put a lot of faith in any of them. but the deal discussed does not include the debt limit, so whether we strike one not this weekend, we w
gaza, the obama administration's wishes have seldom been grapted. >> we and the world have joined in condemning the brutality of the assad regime. >> no one wants to determine what happened that night in benghazi more than the president and i do. >> and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engaged in a coverup. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bottom. >> -- bomb. >> i will not keep american es in harm's way a single day required than is absolutely necessary for our national security. gwen: there's a lot of unfinished business. >> you can call the year of 2012 the year of unsolved problems. par of that didn't include, congress orks north korea. even china is bumping up against its neighbors and it's striking how little of this was discussed. but the economy always gets in the way of foreign policy. about the only piece to foreign policy that made its way to the campaign is first president obama's often repeated claim that he had taken doubt osama bin laden. an
night, if you listened to president obama. >> i think they have to sound optimistic. the last thing they want to do is not sound optimistic. here's the problem. we've come right to the 11th hour. the fact there's going to be a substantive deal that comes out in the 11th hour is probably nailed to zero. in my sense, it's easier to go over the cliff. then there's clarity, right? taxes up, spending cut. the market will know what is going to happen. it can only get better from there, because then you'll guess legislators that come to the table, that try to cut taxes and raise some spending and they'll argue it from a positive point of view and stand up and say, rah, rah, look what we did. right? it won't get any worse if we go into the cliff. if there's a band-aid, confusion, no clarity. the market will probably react more negatively than actually going over the cliff. i think that's what investors have to be concerned about. now, that being said, i don't think the market's going to crash by any sense, because i think there's a lot of money still on the sidelines that needs invested, bu
tomorrow, then by tomorrow night the house is back in session they can vote on any plan passed by the senate, but no one is holding their breath. >> katie: president obama is making alternative plans in case congress does not vote to avoid the cliff. president obama says if lawmakers don't reach a deal he will propose a different vote. >> i will urge the senate to hold an upper down vote to basic package, extends unemployment insurance and lays the ground works for future progress on more economic growth and deficit reduction. i believe such a proposal could pass both houses with bipartisan majorities as long as they let it come to vote. >>> don't be surprised if you come across the jeiy checkpoint in the next couple of days. local law enforcement agencies have launched their annual crackdown a drunk drivers, indictment will are already in place. a bay area lawmaker is voting for tested solution to get repeat drunk drivers off the highways. a proposal that is being used in assisted states. >> the thinking behind the proposed crackdown is address what state senator jerry hill sa

night and see you next year. >> hello, everyone, i'm kimberly guilfoyle, with juan williams, eric bolling, andrea tantaros. congressional leaders met with president obama at the white house in a last-ditch attempt to come to an agreement on how to avoid the looming fiscal cliff crisis. but as the hours tick down, neither side is optimistic. what will that mean for the american people? eric? >> again, i am on the record as saying, i was with you this morning saying i think we should name it the obama cliff and i think we should swan dive off of it because it's the only way democrats will cut spending because they are forced into it. if nothing happens, if a deal isn't struck over the next couple of months, people's paychecks will get smaller because payroll taxes will have expired. peopleville to pay in because the alternative minimum tax won't be patched. taxes will go up. spending cuts over time will happen as well. the stock market, i think the stock market will be hit hard. but again, here i am saying, let's do this. i have the most to lose of anyone i know. it's the only way t
is working on some bill that might get bipartisan support in the senate. president obama in that meeting apparently told them try and work something out. and reid left and made a statement last night, as did mcconnell, that they're going to try and work something out. the best-case scenario is that sometime tomorrow they are able to put it to the senate and then it quos to the house, and then there's a real bill that sounds like a compromise. it's not the grand bargain we were all looking for. it will be some kind of deal to stop going over the cliff. option two is what we're talking about here, that those two can't get a deal and they put something forward and everybody in the senate and subsequently hopefully in the house gets to say yea or no to it. you're on the record. if you go over the cliff, everybody know where is you stood in trying to prevent that from happening. >> do you think the average american, all of us, makes heads or tails -- >> no. >> -- out of what this impact will be on our wallets? >> no. first of all, it's stupid. it's stupid that we're here. there's been nothing
